1. Your Name

  • Where To Watch: Netflix, Apple TV, Roku
  • Japanese Name: Kimi no Na Wa

Let’s get this movie out of the way already. It is one of the best romantic anime movies you will ever watch. From animation right down to the music, this movie serves you with a brilliance all around.

You can pop it up at any time, and you will enjoy it. It is not only one of the best romantic movies you will ever watch, but it is also one of the best anime movies of all time that you should watch.

2. I Want To Eat Your Pancreas

  • Where To Watch: Netflix
  • Japanese Name: Kimi no Suizō o Tabetai

Keep a box of tissue with you while watching this movie because you will need them. Because this movie is an absolute tear-jerker. I had a very hard time controlling my tears while watching this one.

The only thing that let this movie down is the fast pace. That might not let you connect with the characters that much. Everyone would have suggested this one if this story were a 20-episode anime.

3. Violet Evergarden: The Movie

  • Where To Watch: Netflix
  • Japanese Name: Vaioretto Evāgāden

From a fast-paced movie to a movie that lets you connect with every character thoroughly. And the best part is that you can watch the 24-episode anime if you want to cry even more.

The scene where Violet stands outside in the rain will completely break your heart. It is not a feel-good movie in any sense. This movie will make you ugly cry over and over again, so watch it on your own accord.

4. The Garden Of Words

  • Where To Watch: Netflix
  • Japanese Name: Kotonoha no Niwa

One of the most misinterpreted so much. I suggest not watching this movie from your modern viewpoint of romance. It is a movie that deals with two individuals who are trying to fill in some void inside them.

The garden of words is a literal representation of ‘lonely sadness,’ and it is such a brilliant movie. So much for nuanced storytelling; it might serve you as poetry that you cannot help but love. Definitely one of the best romantic anime movies.

5. Howl’s Moving Castle

  • Where To Watch: Netflix
  • Japanese Name: Hauru no Ugoku Shiro

When you start a movie by Studio Ghilbi, the least you expect is excellent animation, and this movie absolutely delivers on that front. Some of the scenic locations and battle scenes are works of art.

There are some fantastic visuals; the music is just beautiful, the characters are charming, and you will root for them. The storytelling is the right amount of emotion that you will love. It is nothing groundbreaking, but it does deliver powerfully on all fronts.

6. Whisper Of The Heart

  • Where To Watch: Netflix
  • Japanese Name: Mimi o Sumaseba

Another gem by Studio Ghilbi, and unexpectedly, it is one of the most underrated romantic movies. It is a charming, coming-of-age story that you will fall in love with on the spot.

Whisper Of The Heart is one of the best romantic anime movies and covers so many other themes like young love, personal growth, the hardship of loving your own craft, and how to hone them. It is truly a joyous ride with some fantastic animation.

7. The Wind Rises

  • Where To Watch: Netflix
  • Japanese Name: Kaze Tachinu

This movie might not be your cup of tea, but this whole movie is a metaphor that will leave you in awe if you understand it. It is based on the real-life of Jiro Horikoshi, who created one of the most destructive planes we have ever seen.

The ending is so bittersweet that you won’t be able to help but cry. This movie is like Miyazaki’s redemption letter and his coming face to face with his mistakes. It is truly beautiful if you understand what this is about.

8. Tamako’s Love Story

  • Where To Watch: HIDIVE, Prime Video
  • Japanese Name: Tamako Māketto

Yes, I know the end comes out of nowhere. But this movie has three things going on for it. Firstly, it is Studio Ghilbi, so the animation always rocks. Secondly, the soundtrack of this movie is quite impressive.

And the final thing that pushes this movie into to Best Romantic Anime Movies category is the story that connects it with the Tamako Market anime. If you have watched the anime series, you will know how brilliant this movie really is.

9. I’ve Always Liked You

  • Where To Watch: Crunchyroll
  • Japanese Name: Zutto Mae Kara Suki Deshita: Kokuhaku Jikkō Iinkai

Yes, this movie has side stories, and there is a correct way to watch the whole trilogy. And it is not that hard; we will tell you that order. But let’s talk about this movie individually right now.

It is an underrated movie, for sure. It is heartbreaking site when you don’t hear about this movie in the conversation of Best Romantic Anime Movies. Because this movie needs to be up on that mantle.

The whole trilogy is a rollercoaster of emotions, and even though the second part is a little bit rushed, you won’t mind that at the end. It is just that good. And the correct order to watch the trilogy is:

I’ve Always Liked You – The Moment You Fall In Love – Our Love Has Always Been 10cm Apart

10. Love Me, Love Me Not

  • Where To Watch: Crunchyroll
  • Japanese Name: Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare

Yes, once again, the movie is rushed, but it is so close to our hearts that we can’t really overlook it. And the best part is that it is from A1 pictures, so the visuals are always really good.

It could have been a 12-episode series, and it would have had a lot more impact. There was a lot to cover in just 2 hours. But that also means the wave of emotions never stops, and you will never leave the hook.

Some Honorable Mentions

  • 5 cm Per Seconds
  • Tokyo Marble Chocolate
  • Ride Your Wave
